Historian Troy Murphie hopes to bring the history of Maitland to life.

From the Maitland Mercury report:
Mr Murphie wants to establish a re-enactment society in the city to entertain and educate locals and visitors on the proud history of the area.
“I have a great passion for history and I’d love to get some more people involved,” he said.
“What we need is a governing body to start with.
“We have so many places like the courthouse and the waterfront to produce historically accurate re-enactments and it would be great for the region.”
Mr Murphie has also relaunched his ghost tours of Morpeth, with the first comeback tour on Friday night.
